21 Oct Vital emails disappearing right in front of you?
Email is an essential lifeline
With us all collecting tens, if not hundreds, of emails per day – across uncountable devices, it’s so easy to accidently delete or misfile an email, never to be seen again!
With nearly all walks of industry now relying on email as a formal, (and legally acclaimed) form of communication, it has never been more important to guarantee you never lose anything from your mailbox.
I have seen cases in my career where a client won a court battle against a supplier, because they were able to produce email evidence of a contractual discussion. The win saved them from a potential £25m loss. Quite a unique example, however a pertinent one to the importance of access to email.
So much like your file data, you’d want to ensure your backup is safeguarding your emails too?
So, what do I have to do?
With email carrying such a high level of importance to all our businesses, we’d best make sure that we can recover a single email, just as readily as our entire file server.
Most entry to mid-level backup services won’t have a requirement to back up your email platform. Especially if it’s something intricate like Microsoft Exchange that you are running within your own premises, or, if you are hosting your email within a service such as Office 365.
Nevertheless! There are many services that can.
What is available to us?
There are several backup service operators that now favour direct integration to back up from, and restore to, email hosting services, (whether that is on premises or within services including Office 365).
Every IT professional will have their preference and as a provider of Managed IT Services we have a few opportunities open to us, which we compare to best meet the needs of our individual clients.
Backing up your data is not only useful but can save your Business from utter disaster.
